Deaccessioning In Small Museums: A Historical View And Lessons From The Past, Kristin Lapos 2016 Seton Hall University

Deaccessioning In Small Museums: A Historical View And Lessons From The Past, Kristin Lapos

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Deaccessioning is a frequent topic of conversation in even small and mid-sized museums in the twenty-first century. With collections costs soaring, budgets dwindling, and space ever more limited, museums must deaccession to survive and prosper. However, deaccessioning and disposal have become hugely controversial, both among museum professionals and with the general public in the past few decades. Scholars like Stephen Weil and Marie Malaro argue that deaccessioning and disposal were non-issues prior to the 1970s. Is this true? If so, how did museum professionals handle deaccessioning and disposal of objects from their collections before this time?

This thesis explores the ...

Let's Keep In Touch : Conversations About Access And Tactility., Whitney E. B. Mashburn

Reflection & Technology In Theory & Practice: Teen Engagement In Art Museums, Chelsea E. Kelly

Occasional Paper Series

This case study shows how the Milwaukee Art Museum’s after-school teen program fosters student engagement through a hybrid practice grounded in constructivist pedagogy.
